Filing closes across the state

The filing period for municipal elections across North Carolina ended Friday and I was watching closely since the success of the Cool Cities program is of course predicated on who's in local office across the state.

I've already heard from one candidate, Chris Smithson. He is a Council member in Southern Pines and is seeking the Mayor's seat. Part of his platform is to make his community a Cool City! You can see his environmental platform here and his main website here.

Does anyone out there know of other candidates who have Cool Cities as part of their platform this fall? If you don't live in a Cool City and wish you did, one of the best ways to do it is encouraging your candidates to take a stand on the issue this fall.

I will be happy to showcase here anyone across the state using this as part of their campaign.

Thanks to Chris for his leadership, and good luck!
